Chichester has been occupied since before Roman times, when it was believed to have been one of the bridgeheads of the Roman invasion of Britain. The city centre is built on the Roman town of Noviomagus, and it benefits from the cross-shaped design favoured by the Romans - North Street, South Street, East Street and West Street converge on the Chichester Cross, a medieval market cross.
Chichester is famous for the annual Chichester Festivities and the Chichester Real Ale and Jazz Festival .
Chichester has a station just south of the City Centre. It is served by Southern services from London, Brighton, Portsmouth and Southampton; and First Great Western services from Bristol and the West Country.
The centre of Chichester is small, and can easily be covered on foot. As with most other towns in England, the town is well serviced by buses and taxis.
There is a bus station situated next to the railway station, south of the city centre. It is a hub for main south coast and local services.
The main taxi rank is located outside the station.
